Baking Whoopie Pie

Peach Teas

A sexy treat: the tasty Whoopie Pie

Spring onions are in season: sweet, tender, delicately flavored

Put some spring in your step! It’s a time for renewal: to recommit to healthy habits but also to be exhilarated by the bounty of the season’s offerings and the latest must-haves for a gourmet lifestyle.


From daffodils to tulips, spring is made more beautiful by blooming bulbs. It's also made more tasty. Now is the season when farmers pull immature onion bulbs from the ground, and the result is a sweet, tender, delicately flavored variety known as spring onions.

We love things that make our lives easier—especially in the kitchen. With Vita-Mix's Vita-Prep 3 blender, you can purée, blend, juice, chop and grind through some of the toughest ingredients to create healthful smoothies, soups, baby food and even margaritas!


Too many home fragrances have a perfumed scent that’s anything but natural. Not so with the diffuser reeds and candles from Hillhouse Naturals Farm. We cannot get enough of the fresh, invigorating, bouquet of their Living Green Collection.


From the highlands of Sri Lanka and the tea gardens of northern Thailand come the newest additions to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s line-up of teas. Only available for a limited time, their new Peach Teas hold all of the flavor of a ripe luscious peach.


At first, we were daunted by Michel Roux: Sauces, afraid of complicated hollandaise, béarnaise and fish stock à la Mastering the Art of French Cooking. But, happily, the famous chef also offers recipes for simple and fresh vinaigrettes, chutney, aioli, tomato water and easy homemade mayonnaise.


The old adage is true: it takes one to know one … and how to help one—at least in the case of obesity. After struggling with her own weight issues, Susan Burke March has maintained a healthy weight for decades. In her new book Making Weight Control Second Nature: Living Thin Naturally, she shares her torment over being overweight.


Should you find yourself in N.Y.C. this month, drop by Eleven Madison Park, where Daniel Humm has risen to the top ranks of New York's great chefs, having won every high accolade possible in the three years he's been at the restaurant, including GAYOT.com’s “Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S.”

If you’d rather wield a spoon in your home kitchen, check out this month’s recipe for Barley Risotto with Spring Vegetables, a perfect meal for the budding warmer season. Barley is a wholesome and versatile grain with a satisfyingly nutty flavor!


Got a sweet tooth? Try cupcake’s competition, the Baking Whoopie Pie. We sampled "The Classic" version, and loved the way the moist cake and marshmallow stuck to the roof of our mouths.


Restaurant designer extraordinaire Adam Tihany sat down with GAYOT.com’s Alain Gayot for an interview at the One&Only Cape Town hotel in South Africa, where Tihany designed celeb chef Gordon Ramsay's Maze restaurant.
